Such self-reflective and self-referential twists were hardly uncommon in the “advanced” art of the day,8 but in Beethoven’s hands the sudden irruption of a conversation into the very form which he had turned into a dramatic unity has especial force. Beethoven’s point—one of them, at least, for it would be foolish to reduce a work of art to something which could just as easily be stated directly—is that the way forward is no longer apparent.
